Why are 24bit recordings not intended for C.D.R. and what are the undesired effects of doing so. The reason for asking is that in the past before hearing not to I made some CD's and as far as I can tell they sound great.

I'll keep this simple. 24 bit is intended for dvd audio. 16 bit is cd audio. Have you ever looked at the file size of a 24 bit flac? Also just because you did process the files on cd you did not get any of the benefits of dvd audio or 24 bit. More superior audio listening through proper dvd players. Dvd audio has multiple tracks not 2 like stereo music. I hope this basic explanation helps.

thanks for all the replys. I believe those shows were already resampled and now that I think back I recall downloading files that were not resampled and I couldn't do anything with em. Thanks again!!!

24-bit recordings cannot be burned to audio CD at all. It's possible to downsample and dither to 16-bit, 44.1hKz WAVs and burn those to a CD - perhaps that's what you did (or a program did for you when you tried to burn 24-bit files).

Can I burn 24 bit files to an audio CD?

No. Audio CD's are limited to 16-Bit, 44.1 kHz. (that's 44,100 samples per second, with each sample being 16 bits long). 24 Bit recordings are generally recorded at 48 kHz, 96 kHz, or even 192 kHz. Although those are the usual sample rates for 24 bit files, some recorders will only record at 44.1 kHz. So it is possible to have 24 bit, 44.1 kHz files.

What software do you recommend for DVD-audio burning? The link is pretty old, and perhaps there are better options by now.

the link may appear old but the administrator of that site is still around and VERY active. the reality is those are probably still the best options and still the "easiest" to comprehend. if you find another program or alternative, I'd send an email to the site and I am sure he will update it.
